In this week’s #TraderTalkTV, Mark Connolly, MD Europe & APAC for AudienceScience, explains the SaaS (Software as a Service) model versus the traditional media-buying model. Explaining the work flow of a typical media buy, Connolly argues that much of the spend gets lost in the “Lumascape” vortex. A 100 million budget earmarked for media spend, Connolly points out, could easily end up being just 60 or 50 million in actual media buys – after intermediaries take a cut. Formerly a data solution provider and behavioural ad network, AudienceScience has now pivoted its model towards a SaaS solution – and acts as a technology vendor to marketers working on fixed fee basis. A brave move given the power of agencies in the buying chain. But AudienceScience is already working with a global FMCG brand which spends hundreds of millions every year on display – so the model is gaining traction with some big advertisers particularly those in procurement and CFO roles. It’ll be interesting to see how this debate will play out over the coming months.
